Traditionally held on the first Saturday of August for more than 25 years, this is Evansville’s busiest shopping weekend with bargains for everyone! It’s the community’s famous garage sale extravaganza. Averaging 150-plus locations, this is a trash-to-treasure hunter’s dream. Most local businesses tend to get into the spirit and offer specials, too; even the public library hosts a sale. Sales typically start Friday; many start Thursday; some run through Sunday. Look for hand-made signs and roam the wonderful historic and new neighborhoods to find that special item you always wanted or never knew you needed.
